Morning today’s home learning is to estimate, round and calculate amounts of money in pounds and pence. Remember to use your learning from last week to help you with this. Follow the LBQ link below. Please can you write your full name so I can see who has been on.

Any questions please ask below.

I did it

I will do it.

I have completed the LbQ task.

Well done Rida you have done really well.

I see you solved this after 8 goes. How did you solve it in the end?

I did it.

You have done extremely well Harris. What would £3.46 round to?

I have completed this but its showing that I missed some questions out??

I didn’t realise this until the end.

Don’t worry Noah, LbQ moves you on to the next level of difficulty once you have answered enough correctly. Saves you from doing things you know how to do over and over again.

I see you solved this after a couple of goes. How did you solve it in the end?

Well done Noah. What did you find difficult? What did you find easy?

I have done the lbq task

You have done really well Merab.

This is the only question you got wrong.

What amount could have been rounded down to £3? You are looking for the largest amount possible.

I did it.

Well done Danyaal. What did you find difficult? What did you find easy?

I found rounding was a little difficult.

i got one wrong

Well done Yalda. You did get only 1 wrong, but you had 14 attempts at this question.

Which 2 items did you choose in the end?

What where the amounts rounded to and what was the calculation you did?

I did it and I am struggling on 24

That is the same question I have put in reply to Merab. You need the highest amount that could have been rounded down to £3. £3._ _? A penny more and the amount would be rounded up to £4.

I have completed this task.

Which items do you choose in the end for this question? What was your calculation?

The items I chose were the football, skipping rope and golf club. My calculation was I added up the football , tennis balls and the golf club but I only got £21 so I knew it had to be the football, golf club and the skipping rope because the skipping rope is £1 more than the tennis balls.

Did you round the numbers?

I did it but one answer I was writing it wrong because I thought I was pressing shift 3 but I was pressing 4 I was about to write the answer then I accidently pressed the my mouse button and it incorrect and when I was to delete it my website took me out of Lbq

I have completed the task on lbq

You have thank you.

You seemed to have found this questions tricky.

First round £9.62, then round £5.46. This should now give you 2 numbers to add together.

What is the final calculation and answer?

i have done it

Thank you Sheima.

I see you struggled with this question.

Round each of the amounts to the nearest pound (1 needs rounding down, the other 2 up).

What is the calculation and answer?

i did it

Yes you have, but I am concerned about the amount of wrong answers.

This question you had 10 goes at.

Remember you needed to round the numbers. Which items did you choose in the end? What is the calculation?

I did it

You have Timothy, but I am concerned about the amount of wrong answers you have especially in the reasoning and problem solving sections.

More thought before answering is needed. Have you got a pen and paper with you to jot down calculations? I think this would help.

A question similar to this your had 8 goes at. See if you can try this one:

I bought a ball for £9.20, a net for £5.60 and a football shirt for £2.30. Using rounding, estimate how much it would all cost.

Then to the nearest pound, how much change would I get from £20?

l do the learning by questions

I have completed the quiz

But I am finding it difficult

I will let Miss Phillpots know. Remember, rounding is to the nearest whole number.

So 1.1,1.2,1.3,1.4 would all round DOWN to 1.

1.5,1.6,1.7,1.8,1.9 would all round UP to 2.

Good morning Yahya, this is 4 blue’s blog page! Go to the 4 white maths blog and there will be a code for our class so you can try the quiz again. Then I will be able to see your answers and help you. Well done for giving it your best and asking for help.
